There are even crazier ones of a public swimming pool in Japan.

Would be interesting to see what happens when everyone exits the pool - theoretically there shouldn't be much water left. (Reminds me of a Simpsons episode...)

Lol, a Belgian 95-year old driver from Antwerpen missed his exit while getting eggs. He ended up in Leeuwarden, the Netherlands around midnight, 400 kilometers to the north. The police apprehended the guy, because he drove very slow across a street, and the 95-year old said he was inspecting the route for his daughter, who had to do a driving exam.

According to the Belgian police, this man was seen driving more often in a disorderly condition, which amazed the Dutch police since such people's drivers licenses are usually revoked after a medical test or an incident.

^ Good that he can drive at all.

Madonna's concert in Ljubljana cancelled. Too few tickets sold.

LOL
Guess what? Her performance in Warsaw is being protested against because it's on the day of a Catholic holiday (15.08). Life has not been easy for her lately.

^ Haha. It would probably be enough tickets sold, if it wasn't in the summer (20.8.), when a lot of people are on vacations.

Most of the prime concerts in here take place in summer though. Radiohead in Poznan, Madonna in Warsaw, U2 in Chorzów, Heineken Open'er in Sopot, Iron Maiden last year...

Yeah, that's true. Most concerts here aren't that good though, cause they don't care about our small country and city that much...

How does she care when she cancelled the concert? It would be her first time here.

Still, 63.000 tickets would be ambitious for such a small country I guess...

Nobody's coming to Slovenia on tour cause you wouldn't buy tickets anyway.

I think also people from neighbouring countries can buy the tickets.
